"QUIRIGUA" Quiriguá by Wojtek_R

Quiriguá Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 58 photos


Home to the spectacular Maya stellae (high posts with hieroglyphs), Quirigua is out of the way, and thus not very touristy compared to the circus that surrounds the ruins of Chichen Itza and Tulum in Mexico.

Spectacular Mayan stellae blend in with the surroundings

These are the main attractions of Quirigua


The United Fruit Company had plantations around the ruins back in the day.
They are gone, but the bananas remain, sadly, most owned by large corporations like Del Monte
